When everything had quieted down and the two lovers were sitting side by side on the sofa, the actress, pretending she was shy, picked up Button and held him up to her face to kiss. Fatal moment for her, for true to his plans, Button planted one claw in her wig and pulled it down over her eyes, while with the other forepaw he scratched her face and clawed her breast with his hind ones.

Ha! Love it And as an aside, her bald head and face remind me of that toy, where magnetic metal flakes could be moved around and placed on the head and face to make facial and head hair. I found it – Wooly Willy! http://www.smethporthistory.org/smethportspeciality/wollypage.htm
I remember those toys! Yes, you are absolutely right she does look similar to Wooly Willy. What a name for a toy!
Those things really happen…
Yes, we have all had a few bad days!
I do hope this was captured on film!
Was it WC Fields who said never work with animals or children? 🙂
Yes it was! This is especially true if your wig comes off easily!
What a nightmare! I really would die if I lost my hair!
Would you die or would you just end up an actress trying to kiss a guy? Lots can happen!
Okay, I exaggerated. I guess I’d just be really upset–I’ve had very short hair after a perm gone wrong in the 80’s fried my tresses. With short hair I kissed more guys. I think because I had to really push myself to have a strong personality without the crutch of my hair. haha.
Bad perm, bad perm what you gonna do when your hair’s quits on you?
Can you tell I have this song on my mind?
This is really funny! I see that this is Billy Whiskers too? Is the cat one of the Chums? I thought it looked evil.
